all believed as a country was there. and then former bush speechwriter david frum wrote in "the daily beast" this week if the war achieves positive gains it is unnecessary costs in human life, money, to the prestige and credibility of the u.s. government are daunting and dismaying if we found the wmd it would have been different. it totally would have been different but we didn't. >> sure. right. >> so are the american people more likely to question the challenge of this country being capable and on a proper premise to go into war? >> absolutely. i mean, those poll numbers that you cited way back when, ten years ago, were reflective of what the american people were told by its government, by its president, its secretary of state, its secretary of defense. the case was made for going to war with iraq. you know, in a time of war the american people rally around the president. but as more information came out, as more facts and corrections of the record came out, the american people saw that they were in essence lied to about getting into a war, not one of necessity but one of choice. an

. in the wake of 9/11, president bush and secretary of state colin powell made the case that saddam hussein was set to use weapons of mass destruction. the u.s. invasion was easy, but the mission was not accomplished by that may, even though some insist today u.s. forces did succeed. war planner douglas fife. >> saddam was in fact an extremely dangerous guy. >> martin dempsey. >> today we have in iraq a partner, not an adversary. >> reporter: but 2003 to 2008 was a nightmare of roadside bombs and civil war. a hard lesson. >> we went into iraq without a real plan for how to stabilize the place afterwards. >> reporter: 100,000 iraqis died. nearly 4500 americans lost their lives. many tens of thousands more suffered permanent physical and emotional injuries. illinois congresswoman tammy duckworth, a chopper pilot lost both legs. she said today the war is not over for veterans like her. >> suicides and mental health and untreated brain injuries. we will be taking care of these men and women for the next 60 years. >> reporter: 53% of americans now feet it was a u.s. mistake to send troops to ira
tonight u.s. forces on the order of george w. bush unleashed what later became known as shock and awe. a massive aerial assault that lit up the night sky in baghdad. we were told it would be a quick war. it was about finding and stopping weapons of mass destruction and we would be greeted as liberators. that did not turn out to be the case. now a decade later in our latest poll, a clear majority of americans say the iraq war was not worth it -- the cost in american lives or dollars. our chief foreign correspondent richard engel spent the better part of the last decade covering the war. he has our report tonight. >> reporter: today, baghdad looked like the place many american troops will remember. more than a dozen bombings, dozens dead. ten years after president bush launched shock and awe and toppled saddam hussein, the iraq war has started again. sunnis versus shiites. it's their fight now. but both sides blame the united states for blundering in, looking for weapons of mass destruction that weren't there, undoing iraq's delicate religious balance. hardly the stability desired after

years. and it is just a colossal, strategic failure of the bush administration to know that we had almost 4,500 of america's best and brightest killed in action, over 32,000 wounded in action, and over 100,000 iraqis dead for an unnecessary war. and a war that should basically never have happened and also a war that we put our troops into harm's way, basically over a religious civil war without the amount of troops that the military generals asked for. >> what do you remember when you see this piece of news that we're reporting today? what do you remember back to the time when you were serving? >> i served in south central baghdad. it was a sunni and shia neighborhood. >> just the case today, according to what we understand now. >> exactly. and i'm still haunted by the fact that mean the of the guys i served with never made it home. to know that folks who are responsible have never been held accountable. whether that's public perception or otherwise is pretty disheartening. >> who needs to be held accountable? >> i think the architects of the war. addiction cheney, paul wolf wits,

for the war seems to fall down party lines. 66% of republicans continue to stand by the bush administration's decision to invade, but 73% of democrats say the military campaign was a mistake. i'm joined by retired army colonel and medal of honor recipient jack jacobs. former pennsylvania congressman patrick murphy, first veteran of the iraq war to serve in congress. great to have both of you today. >> great to be with you. >> we've been talking a lot about iraq because of chuck hagel's confirmation and many republicans, we see the polls, they also still believe in this war in spite of the fact we know there were no wmds, in spite of the fact they've discounted certain ties between saddam hussein and al qaeda. i'm wondering, jack, how you think that all of this, the appointment of hagel who was obviously a republican, but who opposed the war, how it all plays into our current state of affairs. >> well, everything is tainted by sequestration, about the loss of funds, lots of ominous views about what'll happen to our defense posture because of cuts should they come in great pro-fusion in the n
, this is -- part of her problem was also that she is old news in the sense that clintons and bushes alike, just ask jeb bush, these are names that people have been talking about for over 20 years. and there's a real sense out there on both sides of the aisle that it's time for a change. i also think, look, historically the idea that a presidential, that a party can hold on to the white house for three terms in a row is very, very rare, it's very difficult, and the idea that hillary clinton is the woman who can do that i find a little unlikely. i don't think barack obama's popularity transfers to her. if you watch that "60 minutes" interview with hillary clinton and barack obama, you could see why barack obama is more popular than hillary clinton as a politician, because he's a much more dynamic and engaging personality, and hillary just did not seem like she was a particularly interesting person or exciting person to listen to or follow. jon: "the washington post" is out with a poll on gay marriage that is kind of an outlier. the fox news poll and other polls taken til now have said the country is

[applause] >> we are not the anti-obama movement. we are for the american future with greater safety, freedom and prosperity for all. we are for empowering individuals, not empowering bureaucrats. i think there are dozens, and you can see in the as ever in a newsletter two weeks ago on pioneers of the future versus prisoners of the past, there are dozens of new areas we are about to break and we about to be dramatically better opportunity, and the city and both parties is literally blind to the great potential of
's special election, he'll face off against democrat elizabeth colbert-bu colbert-bush. >> people love a comeback story, don't they? >> he says he is going to support his sister. >> all right. one more story to tell you about, folks. the man whose 911 call may have prevented a campus massacre at the university of central florida speaking out saying how it all went down. police say suspect james cumaran pulled the fire arm at the ufc dorm when his roommate came out to investigate the suspect. allegedly pointed an assault rifle right at him. here's what he told anderson cooper. >> i was not going to let him shoot me. i just slammed the door, locked it and i moved away from the door in case he fired at the door. i took some cover in my room so he wouldn't, like, be able to -- the pull lets wouldn't be able to penetrate anything and i called 911. >> completely calm for someone who has just gone through that. by the time officers arrived, he was dead from a self inflicted gunshot wound. he had detailed plans for a campus massacre, four homemade bombs, handgun, assault weapon and 1,000 round
working with george herbert walker bush is it's one thing for people to trust america and have a feeling that america will be there in dealing with the national security issues. on both counts, this president obama has lost. people do not trust president obama and they are not sure that america will be there on national security. >> sean: listen, i'll be honest, i don't trust him. he's so dishonest in the way he plays politics, he's he a demagogue, he lies with abandon and the media couldn't call him out on it. i don't trust him, i don't believe what he says. i think he's phony. >> and picky, picky, picky. >> sean: i know. happy wednesday back at you. >> you're right, nobody trusts this man. >> sean: i don't trust him. i mean, if i'm bb, no way would i trust him. you go through the -- you go through whatever the motions you have to go through. it would be better if he had a strong ally, especially if they're going to have to take out iran's nukes within a year. they need a team, if not, israel will have to go alone sadly. >> the president has to understand he has to build trust at home,
, then-president bush ordered the invasion of iraq. many began to grow frustrated by the loss of life and the weapons of mass destruction. he told me a short time ago that he took time today to reflect on this anniversary. >> to me, it's -- this day is sad because it -- it reminds me that we live in a society at this point where we have to have these perpetual wars going on. i really think we need to look deeper within ourselves, which is why we still keep the memorial up here even though people, i'm sure, ask that question, why is it still up there. the war is over. the war in iraq is over. >> reporter: over the years, this memorial has sparked its share of controversy. vandals several times have torn out the crosses. critics have called for them to come down, describing this display as an eyesore. the creator keeps them up here even though the war in iraq officially ended in 2011. because in his mind, he wants these crosses to remain on the hillside until all u.s. service members will have come home. as we come back out here live, you see a live look at this hillside in la fayette.
